The MLB draft will be held Monday to Wednesday, and what will follow both the first round and the whole process is the assigning of grades.
The picture became a hit on social media, and Jones and his twin brother, Ravens linebacker Alvin Jones, both tweeted that the instinct to help someone in need comes from the way they were raised. Aaron and Alvin were raised by Alvin Jones Sr. and Vurgess Jones, both of whom are retired after long careers in the Army. Alvin Jones Sr. told the Packers’ website last year that he prided himself on raising sons with the right values.
What I’ve told Aaron and Alvin, this is a reward for all the hard work that you guys have put in, Alvin Sr. said. What mom and I always try to do with them, even now, is make sure they understand why they’re successful. That, first and foremost, is the blessing from the man upstairs. Secondly, we try to keep them humble and working hard. No matter how much success you have, there’s always something you can improve so continue to work hard, stay humble and good things will always happen for you.
Mount was a sixth-round pick of the Titans in 2015 and had an interception in four games as a rookie. He played one game for the Colts in 2016 and spent the 2017 offseason with them until being waived in August.
Then there is Chris Webber, whose terrific NBA career helped him overcome calling the timeout he didn’t have at the end of the 1993 NCAA finals. Of course, since his Michigan team and its banners were all vaporized by the NCAA enforcement committee a few years later, did that ever really happen at all? Smith should only be that lucky.
The only surprise with the news that my amazing teammate Larry Brooks, will become a member of the Hockey Hall of Fame is that he hasn’t already been in there for 10 or 15 years. I’m sure the news has Dan Boyle in a good mood, wherever he is.

On Saturday morning, four teams of girls from the sixth through the eighth grades played the first doubleheader at Shannon Forde Field in Little Falls, N.J.
MLB raised $250,000 in a nationwide auction to help finance the creation of this park to honor the Mets’ late media-relations executive.
Nice work there by everyone.
